Ivory Tower

Let's Define some Functions! * Functions can be defined in Python using the "def" keyword in the form "def FunctionName(Variable)" -- The variable listed in parentheses is the parameter that can be passed to the function when it is being called Usage: def myfunction(var1): ... print "Hello World!" ... print var1" * This example function will print "Hello World" then print the value of the "var1" variable * If we want to return a value to the code that called the function, we use "return variablename"
